Description
"It would be wrong to pretend that everything is on the same exalted level as Gould's almost miraculously articulate playing of Bach," writes Andrew Clements in The Guardian, "it was always contrapuntal music that captured Gould's imagination most vividly." 2012 would have been Gould's 80th birthday year, yet his transcendent ability to elucidate the architecture of Bach's music continues to enthrall. Here is "a uniquely gifted and splendidly eccentric musician" (Washington Post) performing the repertoire he loves (and does) best.

The playing of Canadian virtuoso Glenn Gould provokes myriad reactions, from disquiet to awe. Seldom is there indifference. He is celebrated for his revelatory Bach interpretations, yet he cherished the music of the Renaissance, was stupendous in recordings of Beethoven concertos, and championed music of the 20th century. These well-annotated new editions combine his recorded legacy in exciting ways and add to the luster of a reputation that continues to shine, many years after his death.
